Magiciens Vanity

Magiciens Vanity
Dimensions: 15 x 11″
Medium: Etching on Japon
Edition Number: #2/100

Original drypoint etchings with roulette, published in 1969. The Magiciens are made up from two images included in the Faust suite and two images from the Venus in Furs suite. “Magiciens Vanity” is from the Venus in Furs Suite.

Venus in Furs was a novel written by Austrian author, Leopold von
Sacher-Masoch, whose word and name are the inspiration and
origin of the word masochism. A novel about a man whose chief
pleasure was to be thrashed by a beautiful woman wearing nothing
more than a fur coat. Needless to say, this was an intriguing subject
matter for Dali. A major, powerful work, where Dali’s freedom of
line and thought are best expressed.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
